safety challenges that we all face. it's an honor to join vice president biden, administrator pistol and other leaders across the administration in continuing our work this week and adding my voice to this very critical dialogue for this opportunity to thank each of you for your service, your leadership and your partnership with one another, key federal state, local tribal leaders and especially with the united states department of justice. every day, american mayors stance on the frontlines of our our fight against terrorism, crime and first of the most foldable among us. your engagement is essential to protecting our citizens from harm, guarding against civil rights violations in combating guns, gang and drug fueled violence that's too many promising futures. you understand exactly what it is were up against. not only because your alarmist statistics are the news stories, but because you see it firsthand on a daily basis. most importantly you recognize, as i do -- most importantly, you recognize, as i do come up in a public safety challenge can be understood in isolation and none o
. that is why all of us in the president, by the way, the vice president, president vice president biden, and those of us are fighting for this are going to spread the word to the corners of the country. nra members have been speaking out to get something done. these are good law-abiding citizens who want to hunt. they want to go duck hunting. and the guns that they use only allow three bullets. deer hunting depending on what state you are in allow five bullets. most hunters will tell you if you don't get it on the first try, you probably won't get it on the second one. yet we have these machines. we have a large magazines. they can take down 20 children in seconds. the only reason is that our first responders were there and the killer ended up taking his own life. some people will say that it still won't work. let me tell you why it will work. because if you don't have these guns and the large magazines on the shelves, they have done a terrific killings and wouldn't be able to go into a gun store and just buy them. they don't have the background to go and look to wear where the black ma
was exactly that, that president biden -- president -- vice president biden and president obama negotiated, a combination of revenues and reductions. all the lee amendment does is reduce again. he does not offer one new penny to pay for this. he wants to cut it from veterans. he wants to cut it from firefighters. he wants to cut it for police officers. i'm not going to join him in that. it's a wrongheaded approach. if we want to find a way to pay for disasters, i'll show up and negotiate with anybody. but it's not going to be just by cutting defense budget or discretionary budget. it's going to be about either raising some additional revenues and cutting. you will have me. until then, put me down as a "no." and i'm going to suggest to all of my colleagues today that they vote "no" on the lee amendment, if we get to these votes, and "yes" on the underlying bill. one more word, two minutes, about the underlying bill because the senators from the region know it much better than i do. i agree with the chairman from maryland, the senate bill was far more -- far better in some ways. not only did

in this regard. i quoted some of senator byrd's words, senator biden's words strongly opposing, vehemently opposing the effort to change the rules of this body by majority vote when the rules themselves provide it takes two-thirds vote to amend the rules. and so we have got to be consistent. the rules cannot just be simply what the majority want them to be, whatever the current majority is. this is a body that has continuity. it's one of the few bodies in this country that have couldn't newity. the only other -- that have continuity. the only other one is the supreme court. two-thirds of us were not elected last november. two-thirds of us continue from the last senate. over the centuries, this body has been looked to as a source of continuity where the rules can't just be changed at the will or whim of a majority but where the rules stay in place until amended. the rules don't end when a congress ends in terms of senate rules. house rules do because all the house members are elected every two years, but senate rules are permanent until amended or changed, and it's critically important that
